A Visit to Doi Suthep, Thailand

Thailand’s Prime Minister, Yingluck Shinawatra, met with the people at a temple.

Wat Phrathat Doi Suthep is a Theravada Buddhist temple in Chiang Mai, Thailand. The original founding of the temple remains a legend and there are a few varied versions. The temple is said to have been founded in 1383 when the first chedi was built.

Over time, the temple has expanded, and been made to look more extravagant with many more holy shrines added. A road to the temple was first built in 1935.
